It doesn’t matter who you are, or what your position is in society; distracted driving effects everyone. Whether someone is texting while driving, talking on a cellphone, using a mobile computer or changing a song on a digital music player, such distractions take a driver’s attention off the road just long enough for an accident to happen. Distracted driving has also been found to be even more dangerous than driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Researchers at Virginia Tech did a study where they found that someone who is driving while distracted is as much as 23 times more likely to be involved in a collision than drivers who are not distracted behind the wheel and who keep their eyes and their minds on the road.
